clinton was president. that's how we can reduce the deficit while still making the investments we need to build a strong middle class and a strong economy. that's the only way we can still afford to train our workers or help our kids pay for college, or make sure that good jobs and clean energy or high-tech manufacturing don't end up in countries like china. now, already i've put forward a detailed plan that allows us to make these investments while reducing our deficit by $4 trillion over the next decade. i want to be clear, i'm not weded to every detail of my plan. i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. but, i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. i'm not going to ask students and seniors and middle class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me making over $250,000 aren't asked to pay a dime more in taxes. i'm not going to do that. and i just want to point out, this was a central question during the election. it was debated over and over again, and on tuesday night we found out that the majority

tv.

he's trying to fix the problems and i think the blueprint is what clinton did when he was president in the second term and created 23 million jobs, slashed the deficit and created the largest surplus in history. it's the same blueprint. and that's what's going to happen now because that's what president obama was reelected, why democrats picked up seats in the house and why so many republicans, majority of republicans in congress now have not signed the grover norquist pledge and even those who have may not honor it. so that tells you everything. stuart: look, i think you're right. i think we're going to end up with higher tax rates on people making, probably 500,000 or a million dollars a year, i think that tax rates there. >> probably. stuart: could go up. >> yeah. stuart: but tell me how you get serious growth in the economy with this set of policies that the president's laid out? how do you get 4, 5, 6% growth? how do you get there with this? >> because you just can't raise taxes and you just can't cut. you also have to make investments and tackle the deficit. you have to do all
